Creative Collaboration: Green

For March (we are running about a month behind in the posting) the creative collaboration team was inspired by this instagram from DixonBaxi, a creative company out of London (and the Baxi in the name is my cousin). I was struck by the the way the green and black took up space within the image creating shapes within shapes as they connected together. This month collaborators pulled together some poetry, another healthy dish for you to make, and a color study. Check them out below.

Be Bop Wow

By Sylvana Christopher

Act of Percussion
Striking tapping
Making a beat
Rhythm central in yo feet

Instruments polished
Mallet in hand
Cling clang clash
Bring on the band

Creative impulse
Notes on a scale
Free in form
And ready to wail

Dancers place
Red, Black & Green
Lil’ drummer face
So fresh and so clean

Pump it up
Follow the baton
Musicians commune
Eh Cool cats, A come On

Afro funk maker
Boom bat how
Mover & shaker
Be bop wow

Sticks in a bundle are unbreakable – African proverb

By: Priya Chhaya

During a peaceful moment I pulled together a a study in green and black of a page from my Star Wars coloring book. I wanted to take the lines and contrast from the instagram and pull them together into something a little bit less abstract
